While Shrikant Jadhav with 7 points was Goa's top scorer, they couldn't make a comeback as Pawan Sehrawat with 14 points made sure that the defending champions kept an upper hand. As Indian Railways looked to secure another crown after winning 43-20, their final encounter against Maharashtra looked evenly balanced.
Indian Railways won the final showdown outperforming Maharashtra 38-21. Pawan Sehrawat with 9 raid points made sure the defending champions held a firm grip throughout the game.
